Hello amani622, These new rooftop mount home wind turbine kits that I am building are great. The profile is pretty sleek and attractive. The system is actually a home appliance and doesn't really stand out much more than an antennae, chimney, or satellite dish. This makes a nice clean way for homeowners to get into the clean energy movement. The systems are inexpensive, easy to install and scaleable.
These systems have wind/solar built right in. The wind is stronger in the winter months, sun is stronger in the summer months, we designed a system that is attractively priced, that gives an even flow of energy year round. Wind power scales down in size to be perfectly feasible for a homeowner sized system to provide power for their home. Many customers have found it easy to become wind turbine customer/dealers. They are able to do this with no further investment and they see how easy people are to get interested.
I have used them to save money on my electricity costs and amani622, you could too. The systems pay for themselves in 5 to 10 years depending on your local wind resources, and they last for 25 or 30 years before needing a rebuild. Have a look at these windmaps and see can you pinpoint what number your area is in. 2 is OK and anything over 2 is very good. Let's double check your wind resources are good.
I attempted to send this comm via email but it did not seem to be working. However, it may still come through eventually and show up in your inbox. Anyway, I decided to leave it as a comment just in case.
Good to hear from you! I'm in a rush right now or I would be more chatty but check out this discussion. It may be of some help to you.

I am working on several new solar projects in N California
With a good energy plan, we drill now so in 7 or so years we can be a net exporting nation again
How is it going? I don't have time to chat right now but I will be back. This week is a very busy week for me and my PP time is going to be pretty much hit and miss but I will get back to you.
amani, one thing that you would need to find out in regards to your property in Pine Bluff and that is the wind factor. In other words, is there enough wind enough of the time to make having a wind farm viable in the location where your property is. If not wind perhaps something could be done solar.
I do have a person in my friend network that might be of assistance to you regarding exactly waht you need to determine the viability of a wind farm on your property.

Talk to you soon.
May we always desire to play a better game and create a better tomorrow (for everyone!).
I'm in Fort Smith, AR. I see you have property in Jonesboro. Are you aware of the Fayetteville Shale Play? If not I encourage you to google it. Supposedly it is going to be bringing in 17 bil and 11,000 new jobs to AR over the next few years.
It's late. I've got to get my rear end to bed! I'll touch bases with you again later.
